RISE® IntraLIF® is an innovative percutaneous expandable lumbar interbody spacer that achieves traditional fusion goals through an 8.5mm inner diameter cannula. By leverging extraforaminal access and visualization through the IntraLIF® procedure, the RISE® implant expands in situ to distract and optimize fit.
- Minimal Anatomical Disruption: The IntraLIF® approach preserves the facet joint and avoids disruption of paraspinal muscles.
- Protected Corridor: Instruments are passed through a small cannula creating a protected corridor past the nerve roots.
- Optimal Disc Access: The procedure is performed from a more lateral approach than a TLIF and allows increased access to the entire disc space.
- Improved Implant Placement: The insertion trajectory enables better implant placement across the midline of the vertebral body
